* Help Ace Purple Win Again Today!!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the first round of Mascot Madness! With your help, Ace Purple defeated Creighton's Billy Bluejay by a final score of 656-29 and is one step closer to being named the Valley's Best Mascot! Today, Ace takes on SIU's Grey Dawg in the semi-finals and we need the same support that we saw yesterday!

The voting process is the same, simply "like" the MVC Facebook page linked here: The poll will be posted around 9 a.m. today and voting runs till 4:30 p.m.

Grey Dawg ended the first round with 478 votes so we need ALL of our fans to put some pressure on the Salukis tomorrow! Please forward this on to students, friends, family and anybody that you know. We're going up against some much larger fan bases in this tournament and we want to make sure that this small campus shows some HUGE school spirit!

* Mark Cirino Publishes New Book

Congratulations to Mark Cirino, assistant professor of English, who recently published a new book, Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action.

Although much has been written about Hemingway's love of action — hunting, fishing, drinking, bullfighting, boxing, travel, and the moveable feast — Cirino looks at the author’s focus on the modern mind and interest in consciousness. Hemingway, Cirino demonstrates, probes the ways his characters’ minds respond when placed in urgent situations or when damaged by past traumas.

Cirino is the coeditor of Ernest Hemingway: Geography of Memory and the general editor of Kent State University Press’s “Reading Hemingway” series. He is also the author of two novels, Name the Baby and Arizona Blues.

Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action is available from the University of Wisconsin Press
